Hydroderm Loses Lawsuit Against Actress

December 12, 2008

Teri Hatcher defends herself against $2.8 million lawsuit.

Actress Teri Hatcher has successfully defended and settled her lawsuit with Hydroderm. Hydroderm filed a $2.8 million suit accusing the Desperate Housewives star of not upholding an endorsement deal she made with them in 2005, because she supposedly praised the effects of a rival, City Cosmetics. The former Bond girl was photographed in association with the competitor’s products and agreed to be interviewed about using City Cosmetics products, including its centerpiece City Lips lip plumper, which directly competes with Hydroderm’s lip enhancer.

Hatcher fought the suit, claiming she had done “absolutely nothing wrong” and she was apparently very right. The actress was vindicated and awarded an undisclosed financial settlement on December 12, with Hydroderm bosses retracting their earlier accusations.

A spokesperson for the company says: “Hydroderm LLC has specifically retracted all accusations made against Teri Hatcher including that she endorsed any competing products. Teri Hatcher is a woman of the highest integrity. We sincerely apologize for the adverse publicity resulting from our lawsuit.”
